I'm sure that this platform has been upgraded in the last year as it looks twice as big as it does in that pic.

I was hoping to see Britannia and BLP picture together, any chance of an updated photograph.

Safe Scandinavia has recently departed the Britannia field having been there for the BLP (bridge linked platform addition). Safe Bristolia has now taken over the Scandi's duties.

Currently on this platform at the moment testing the deluge system. I work for Tyco andf we've come across quite a few problems with it. I'm sure we'll get it sorted though! :)

Just had another trip putting in the temporary deluge water curtain system for the wellbay. Of the many platforms I've visited, this has to be my favourite.

Worked on this platform for 3 months in 2002. Great food and accommodation. However they ran out of cabins while I was there so had to shuttle to Piper B. Bit old but great showers!
